Adult ADHD and Depressive Disorders: Prevalence, Significance, and Clinical Presentation

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  07 November 2014

Extract

Adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and the spectrum of depressive disorders have high overlapping prevalence rates. Rates of depression in adults with ADHD and rates of ADHD in depressed adults provide an important epidemiologic background for clinicians treating either or both of these populations. There is a distinctive phenomenology of ADHD and depression, and distinctive diagnostic issues that present with the coexistence of these two disorders.
